Faux locs styles come with many variants that promote the growth of your hair while preventing damage. One such variant is the butterfly or distressed locs.
Suggestive of the name, butterfly locks or distressed locs give the appearance of a butterfly, thanks to its wing-like characteristics spread throughout the locs. This wing-like characteristic makes butterfly locs different from other faux locs techniques.
The wing-like feature is achieved by holding a piece of hair outwards with the rest of the hair wrapped around the locs. Butterfly/distressed locs hair gives your hairstyle a modern, chic feel while also having the protective characteristics of faux locs dreads. As your natural hair is held together by extensions, they prevent breakage and other forms of damage to your hair.
